Fashion Week Daring Cardmakers

Hi! It's my week to set the challenge over on Daring Cardmakers this week and here's what I picked out:

Fashion Week

This week London Fashion week kicks off and last week we had New York Fashion week, (piccys above are from New York, loving the socks and sandals, that's defo the look I'm rocking this week in the lovely UK crazy transitional hot then cold weather!) so inspired by all the fashion fun for the challenge this week I'd like you to create a card that features a whole outfit. It could be a stamp you want to use or have a go at making your own outfit from patterned papers or just incorporating a cool image from the web or magazine you like.

Here's the card I made:

I actually had a whole other plan for this week and started out hand painting lovely pictures of dresses and got totally caught up in it all before I knew it a couple of hours had passed by and when I stopped and looked at what I'd done it was all on a really large scale, like A4 size and even after chopping around for a while there was nothing that looked right to be use for a card. I think my brain must have just wanted to do some pretty dress painting not thinking about cards! So anyway back to the drawing board and because time was running low at this point I grabbed my trusty stamps box to see what I could find and luckily had a few fashiony ones to use. The big greeting is a Lawn Fawn one and the little one is a really old Papermania one and then I used a little dot stamp to stamp all over the background. The paper in the background is Basic Grey Barista, which if you've not checked out has some really lovely individual papers in it well worth a look at.
So in the end a pretty boring standard card but I did have fun looking at lovely fashion and sketching and painting and that's what crafty fun time is all about! lol
